and fallen further in the rankings down to 31st in math, 24th in science, 21st in reading of all things. and political prospect editor kelly mcnerney joins us and who is to blame for this? >> honestly, i think it's federal government spending we're using as a remedy, just throwing money at the problem. when you look at the numbers, it's startling. we spend $15,000 per every student in this country on education and that's more than every single country in the developed world and japan beat us in the international ranking that you mentioned and we're throwing money at the problem. it's not the lack of spending, it's the character of the spending. it's not trickling down to the classroom, it's federal government regulation and it should be a state-run education should belong to the state and no child left behind. it usurps a lot of power from the states and that to me that's the problem not relegating to the states. stuart: you'd get rid of it-- not all of it, but some of the bureaucracy because that's where the money is flowing, the administrators of the schools and all kind of people bac
